Best Places To Live In Lincolnshire
Lincolnshire is a county in the East Midlands. Most of Lincolnshire is countryside, with predominantly flat agricultural land. The county also offers coastal retreats. In this guide, we’re looking at some of the best places to live in Lincolnshire and what they have to offer.
First up, we’re looking at the city of Lincoln. A beautiful, historic city, one of the main attractions is the majestic cathedral which sits atop the only hill for miles around. The so-called Steep Hill certainly lives up to its name, but there are plenty of independent eateries to make the climb a little more pleasant.
Located just outside of Cambridgeshire, Stamford was voted one of the best places to live in 2021. It offers period charm and the impressive Burghley House and its grounds are well worth a visit. The town is known for its independent shops and eateries. And with a train station it offers frequent connections to Birmingham and Peterborough.
Horncastle is a town and civil parish on the doorstep of the Lincolnshire Wolds. Local attractions include Wolds Wildlife Park, Bolingbroke Castle, Snipe Dales and St Mary’s Church. With lots of attractions and surrounded by the natural beauty of the Wolds, it’s ideal for those who love the great outdoors. It’s also equidistant from the city of Lincoln and seaside town of Skegness. These two destinations can be easily accessed along the A158.
Coningsby is surrounded by flat, marshy fen land. Local attractions include the National Trust’s Tattershall Castle and the Battle of Britain war museum. It’s also a hotspot for water sport enthusiasts, with fishing and water skiing.
